This place was great, street map and when i said we'd parked in the public pay parking, we were told there was 4 free tourist spaces behind their building...saved me $$$$. The big letdown was the trolly tour. $3 pp hop-on, hop-off. The guide gives you times to be at the pick up points if you decide to hop off....don't... More

The visitor center really catches the flavor of Montgomery. Located right on the river you can stroll the river front while there. There is a nice little movie that you can watch to get your plans laid out. There is a tour bus that leaves form the front door and a Segway tour that leaves out the back. It really... More

If you have only an hour or so to spend in Montgomery, or better yet, you want an introduction to what you can discover more in depth, take the trolley around this capital city from the Visitor's Center. Past reviews (maybe out-of-date) have conflicting information on the trolley. Here's what we learned during our visit in spring of 2014. There... More

For the low price of $3.00, you get a fun, personality filled trolley ride tour that gives a nice overview of the downtown area as well as a fun history lesson. Our group included small children to great-grandparents and everyone enjoyed it.

I take all out of town visitors on the trolley ride. It's a great value for seeing downtown attractions and *used* to be a good, entertaining lesson on downtown Montgomery history. I say it used to because the past six or so tours I have taken were driven by Ray. He brings life to the tour and seems to know... More

Highly recommend the trolley tour of downtown Montgomery. Very nice job of packaging all of the sites and making it all accessible. Our trolley driver and guide, Ray-Ray, was extraordinary. He was very knowledgeable and approachable. Well worth the time and nominal fee.

The Visitors Center was the first place we stopped in Montgomery. The staff who helped us was very friendly,helpful, and most importantly, actually knew Montgomery in detail. She gave us maps, marked them up, helped with her ideas on restaurants, told us what attractions were open on Saturday and Sunday, and just really made us feel welcome. And then what... More

We have been living in Montgomery for the past 2 years but didn't know that you can get a Trolley Tour of the downtown. I had a friend visiting from Texas so we decided it will be a prefect time to take the tour. Cost was $3 per person. We had our 15 month old son and were able to... More

We stopped in at the Montgomery tourist center at the old Union Station to reserve a spot on their $2 historical trolly tour of the city of Montgomery. What a deal! Our trolly first drove past the Rosa Parks Museum before passing the Court Square Fountain at the end of  Dexter Ave. If you stand facing the Capitol Building at... More
